What are we to believe with the numbers coming out of China? The World Health Organization initially declared a global pandemic, then backpedalled this week on the 4th and said it was not. How is a discussion even possible with only a few very closely guarded infections in countries outside of China, and only about 500 people killed in China by the epidemic?
Somebody is wrong or lying. None of the information adds up. But there have been glances at what may be the true picture of what is going on in Wuhan.
Look at the above image. It is from a recent article on a recent article on Zero Hedge. The picture is a screengrab from the website Tencent, and their official “Epidemic Situation Tracker.”
There are two images next to each other in the picture, with the same data, one day apart. On the left it shows the numbers for February 1st, 154,023 infected, and 24,589 dead. Then the next day, on the right, the numbers are severely reduced to what were the official government numbers of the day.
Meanwhile, out of Wuhan, there are reports that the crematoriums are running 24/7, and burning 100 bodies per day. The government has banned funerals. The people are dying, and they take them immediately out to be burned.
Here in the US, things are as normal. Even the stock market has recovered on news that a vaccine is on the way.
Are we that stupid?Please, for your own good, at least read my article on the different types of masks and their effectiveness in such a crisis. There is also a video, but only the article has been updated for these new videos. As explained above, the pictures and videos coming out of Wuhan make zero sense with what we know about viruses. Now there are fires burning in the city, as if it were the classic zombie outbreak. We just don’t know what is going on.
At the very least, figure out how to stay inside for a while. There is no rush for canned and other long term off-grid foods right now. Take advantage. To really engage the problem, please check out my most recent Prepping 101 column for the cheapest options.
And if you can, buy at least one mask of some kind per person.You will pay heartily for them already, and soon there will be none left to obtain at all, and you will be forced to resort to the CDC’s “t-shirt method“. Or just revert to “Respiratory Etiquette” as the CDC also suggests, and ask people to sneeze into their sleeve.
Guns just aren’t enough when the game is finally over. Your neighbors don’t have any quantity of food either. I don’t know if the music has indeed stopped, or if we will be back to “everything is awesome” soon enough. But I have an obligation to share what is most likely an enormous coverup of the crisis that is really unfolding behind the scenes. Zombies aren’t real. But frantic people in a crisis are very real and very dangerous. Ten years early is better than one day late.
This is from a new article at ZeroHedge today:
When we look back on this moment from the vantage of history, what will we think? Will we think how obvious it was that the coronavirus deaths in China were in the tens of thousands rather than the hundreds claimed by authorities?
Will we think how obvious it was that the virus would spread around the globe, wreaking havoc on the global economy and social order, even as the authorities claimed only a handful of cases had arisen outside China?
Will we be amazed at the delusional confidence that the U.S. economy would be untouched by the virus as stock markets quickly soared to new all-time highs while the world’s largest economy ground to a halt in a desperate attempt to close the barn door after the horses had already escaped?
Will we look back at the patently false data being promoted by authorities and wonder why the majority accepted it all as credible?
Will we re-examine all the smartphone videos posted on the web by average people and wonder why all the lies were given more credibility than actual videos?
Will we recall how content that didn’t parrot the approved narrative that everything was under control and the global impact would be near-zero was suppressed, banned, de-platformed or marginalized? Will we wonder at the complacency of all those who accepted this orchestrated suppression with such obedient passivity?
Will we look back at the claim that only twelve people in the entire U.S. had the virus, despite all the direct flights from Wuhan and the tens of thousands of people who’d traveled from China to the U.S. in January, and marvel at our credulity?
Will we look back at the wreckage left in the wake of the coordinated campaign to suppress the facts and lay the responsibility for all the carnage on the authorities who devoted more energy to hiding the realities of the pandemic than to preparing us for the impact?
Will we ponder the incredible grip of mass delusion on the human mind when we recall the confidence that the U.S. economy was invulnerable to the virus and the implosion of China, and the blithe quasi-religious faith that central banks would never let global stock markets decline even 2%?
Will we wonder how the mainstream could watch the Chinese economy shutting down and still remain absolutely confident that the global economy would be untouched as the spot of bother was sure to evaporate in a week or two and all would be restored to pre-virus euphoria?
Will we wonder what were we thinking? and marvel anew at the madness of crowds? Will we wonder why we embraced the delusion so readily, and relive the moment when the gate to reality creaked open? Will we relive our realization that we’d embraced an absurd fantasy floating on a tissue of lies, or will we bury that painful moment of truth?
